, back in january when president obama av his first interview we remember this interview that he gave five or six days after he was sworn in as president, and he -- one of the things he said was we need to put aside preconceptions and assumptions. he wasn't talking about iran specifically. he was talking i think more about arab-israeli issues, but this certainly would apply to iran. because if you go into an encounter with iran assuming that day, the other side are simply too stubborn, to be irrational and unreasonable, then i would say you will fail and you will fail for surgeon. now, interesting to me, you could ask the question, i ask myself when president obama said this in january was he aware -- did he know about the poetry? he might because two months later when he addressed the iranian people on the occasion of their new year he quoted him, a different poem, a different first, but there it was. so, let me and it this way. you are getting out of this 30 year in pass, what i call for 30 years of futility it's going to take a paradox, a kind of mental paradox. we have to think to

economic policy. president obama, secretary clinton, and the u.s. congress should not take the bait being offered by the cuban government when it attacked the cuban waters. it is important that the united states pursue policies that increase people to people contact between the two countries, regardless of what ever steps the cuban government might take in response. conditioning improvements and effectiveness of u.s. policy to whatever actions cuba pursues effectively puts control of our foreign policy in the hands of the cuban regime. lifting the ban on american travel to cuba and allowing more cubans to enter the u.s. on travel visas will do more to further the cause of freedom than the tit-for-tat of diplomatic gamesmanship. the real losers in that game are always the same, the long-suffering people of cuba. as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the berlin wall, it's important to remember that none of the eastern european countries that threw off the yoke of communism were isolated from their western neighbors, not one. moreover, it was exposure to the western travelers,
